Last year, my refrigerator stopped working. There were no warning signs. One day, I came in from work and found that it had died. A call to one of the local appliance services led to a technician coming to my home and confirming my worst fear.
The good news is that all hope was not lost. The professional found the cause of the problem and was able to have the refrigerator working again after a couple of hours. While I've not had any other issues with my kitchen appliances, you can bet that I know who to call if anything does happen.
If you do not know who to call in the event of an appliance breakdown, let me tell you why now is the time to do some research. After you hear more about my anxious hours of scrambling to find someone, you'll see the wisdom of being prepared.
